All adults aged 18 and over, who have attended their scheduled appointments have been vaccinated with their first dose, the Scottish Government has said.

It said some have been re-scheduled for health or work reasons but all over 18s appointments have been completed on Sunday.

It is now expected that all second doses will be given by Sunday, September 12.

The government said anyone who has not yet received their first dose for whatever reason should head to a local drop-in clinic or go to NHS Inform to book an appointment convenient for them.

Health Secretary Humza Yousaf said: “It is testament to the incredible work being done by all those involved in the vaccination programme that we have reached this milestone of giving first doses to all those who attended their scheduled appointments.

“For anyone who hasn’t yet come forward, we urge you to do so now.

“All of the evidence says that the vaccines are working as we continue to battle the faster-transmitting Delta variant which is now dominant so I urge everyone to take advantage of the vaccination programme which is open to every adult in Scotland.”

The Health Secretary had his second dose at the Glasgow central Mosque yesterday.

He said: “I am delighted to have received my second vaccination and would like to thank all the staff in Glasgow and throughout Scotland for their efforts in ensuring the success of the roll-out.

“As Scotland heads towards Level 0, and we look forward to lifting more restrictions, it is vital that everyone takes the opportunity to get both doses of their vaccination when this is offered. The second dose gives greater and longer lasting protection, and should not be missed.

“Vaccination is crucial to protect ourselves, our families and our communities, and to help us on the path back to normality.”
